Norwegian not showing flights from Gatwick to Fue.....
« on: August 17, 2017, 09:35:23 am »
Norwegian not showing flights from Gatwick to Fue after March 2018.  Is this because the dates and times have not been released yet or has the service been withdrawn. I did a search on Google and cannot find any information.

I can only assume they have packed in doing Fuerteventura, as they normally put on flight schedule 1 year in advance. Maybe just concentrate only sub-contracting to Thomson, which they are doing this peak season, again.
We now have to use Tho Cook or easyJet. Thomson usually too expensive.

They are apparently going to concentrate on long haul, and have come to some arrangement with Dire Air, sorry Ryan Air to link their long haul flights to connect with the others short haul.

Judging by the aircraft registration and a few other details, I strongly suspect it was a "wet lease" operation with RyanAir.

The news is out!
Norwegian has come to an 'agreement' with easyJet to link their shorthaul service timetables and to sell their longhaul flights on the easyJet website.
Did the competition authorities sign this off? ie. 'You stop competing on these routes and we'll sell your longhaul flights'.
Come to think of it....why is there only ONE monopolies commission?? :D
